Nothing Like a Good Thumb

Sophia is our first baby to refuse to take a pacifier. It didn't take her long to realize she has something built-in that works just as well, if not better!

It's really adorable.
It's really convenient.
She's great at self-soothing and putting herself to sleep wherever we are.

I can already see the future orthodontic bills piling up.

Definitely TOO cute!!! I like how convenient it is too -- and Laura is making signs towards the thumb. UGH, I'm determined to make her take the paci, but we'll see...all the others went for their fingers/thumbs and I'm already visiting the ortho office.

I'm inclined to think that the thumbsucking = orthodontist is an old wives' tale. Lots of kids who didn't suck their thumbs get braces, after all. A thumb is so much easier than a pacifier -- never gets dropped or lost! Plus Sophia is SO CUTE with her thumb in her mouth.

She is so cute! Ben loved his passie but Naomi won't have anything to do with it. She hasn't found her thumb yet, but we shall see! I love Sophia chubby little hands!

Yep, my third born likes her thumb too... and that's a first for me. It's SO cute! She mainly does it now when she's tired, but when she was smaller she did it more. So fun!
